Lonely Planet: The world's leading travel guide publisher
Bejaysus and begorrah! The next best thing for anyone not blessed with the gift of the gab - a grand tour through the language, lilt and laughter of Ireland old and new. So join in the craic, forget the Blarney Stone and wrap your tongue around English the way the Irish reinvented it.
Features a special section on Irish Gaelic.
Lonely Planet's Language & Culture series goes behind the scenes of languages you thought you knew. Get into the culture and humour behind common - and not so common - English expressions and learn about the local languages that inspired them.
Lonely Planet gets you to the heart of a place. Our job is to make amazing travel experiences happen. We visit the places we write about each and every edition. We never take freebies for positive coverage, so you can always rely on us to tell it like it is.
Authors: Written and researched by Lonely Planet, Gerry Coughlan, and Martin Hughes.
